TobyMac - 'Scars' (Come With Livin') (Official Live Video)

Coming from a deeply personal place as a father, TobyMac writes a song specifically for his children as they move out into this crazy world.  What is his advice to them?  You hear it in this official LIVE video of TobyMac's "Scars".

Where did the inspiration for "Scars" come from?  TobyMac tells us it came from being a father.  For the first time in my life I found myself sending ships out of the harbor. Up ‘til now our family, our home, it’s been the harbor. People I love the most are going out and facing the pain, the struggle and the temptation of this crazy world.I’m very aware of the scars that come with life’s journey, but sometimes we insulate those things from the ones we love, our children. So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy. I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” – tobyMac

"Scars" Lyrics

No, no
Yeah I'm
Just beepin' right now
I gotta go
Hey

Had you on my mind
Had a little time
Know we kinda overdue 
Turnin' back the pages
To our younger days, yeah
I can still imagine you

Boomin' like a thunder
Chasin' life with wonder
With fire that could light a room
Bottom kinda fell out
Waited for the rebound
But you never made a move

When life cuts so deep
Try and remember

You are not alone
We've all been there 
Scars come with livin'
You are not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'

Life ain't got no sequel
We all broken people
The only road to found is lost 
Oversimplifyin' 
Ain't no shame in tryin' 
Passion never counts the cost

Now you won't take my phone calls
You won't text me back at all
I just wanna see you
I can't stand to see you gone
Yesterday I missed you
Yesterday I played your song
I'm oversimplifyin', I'm oversimplifyin'

But try and remember

You are not alone
We've all been there 
Scars come with livin'
You are not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'

(Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin'
Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin')

It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars

You, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'
You, you're not alone, you're not alone
So lift your head up 
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up 
Oh, scars come with livin'
Lift your head up 
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up 
Oh, scars come with livin', (lift your head up)

It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars
